3.3/5  rDev -18.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: a golden to copper color. a finger of a white head that fades quickly and leaves a slight lacing behind. Hazy and opaque

Smell: earthy hops, cloves and banana, bubblegum sweetness and some fusel alcohols.

Taste: opens up with yeasty characters, some banana along with a good amount of clove and some subtle bubblegum. middle has earthy hops. backend is full of bready malts and some more belgian yeast character. little to no alcohol.

Mouthfeel: good heavier sipper, some warmth, slightly dry and slightly bitter.

Overall: this is not a traditional tripel, and while its good, in terms of a tripel I find it lacking a lot. I don't like the bubblegummy flavor in this style and the earthiness seems to make the other tastes more subtle.

4.4/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured chilled in hotel glass (oy vey--it was all that was available)

A: slightly dark amber, very luscious, ample head; creamy bubbles; carbonation is very active; great lacing
S: yeast, banana, very strong and inviting (the aroma was detectable just upon uncapping)
T: amazing flavor; very complex, much in the Belgian style; sweet, moderately bitter; pear, banana, and pepper overtones; strong alcohol backbone, tasting higher than the 8.5% advertised.
M: very smooth

I would have this again any time. It was my first beer from Pretty Things, and I'm definitely intrigued, will look for others.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Pours a brilliant golden straw with a lingering ivory head.

Pear and clove accompany white pepper and confectioners sugar in the aroma.

Flavor reveals more resiny and vinous notes. Light apple tartness contrasts earthy, resiny hops, with notes of bananas adding complexity. The contrast between tart and earthy is nice.

Body is a touch heavy, smooth, with noted alcohol warmth.

A touch hot, but good depth of flavor. The bitterness is more than I prefer, but great balance, otherwise.

Light amber hue, short head, little lacing. The head's a little thicker with a very vigorous pour, but the appearance, while perfectly OK, is not exceptional. Candy-like aroma, long on bubble gum. The taste is quite pleasant, if, perhaps, a little more confectionary than other leading tripels. There's banana, there's cotton candy, but it's a sophisticated sweetness--both inviting and satisfying. Texture is sufficiently rich.

A - Arrived in a tall tulip-style glass with a couple fingers of bubbly head. Good retention with light but consistent lacing. Vibrant carbonation streams from the center of the glass. The beer is a deep gold and quite clear.

S - Bubblegum sweetness, and the character that I associate with Belgian yeast.

T - Follows the nose. The sweetness is there, as is the yeast character. The flavors are sharp and distinct. Not muted and heavy. I like the light, airy qualities of the flavors. Didn't realize that the alcohol contact was 8.5% It is very well hidden.

M - Medium-light bodied and very dry. Slight astringency on the tongue. Big fan of these light tripels. The heavy ones don't do much for me.

O - I think this one compares very favorably to some of the top-rated tripels that I've tried. Not sure if it's a deviation from the style or not, but it tastes more like a Belgian Golden Ale that I've really enjoyed then the Tripels that I typically shy away from.
